    • Rainfall during the 2015/16 rainy season has been sufficient and well distributed in time, which has allowed for the normal development of pastures and rainfed crops. These two positive factors will contribute to better food availability for poor households during the upcoming 2015/16 consumption year in comparison to the previous year.

    • Livestock prices have increased significantly compared to the same time last year, resulting in improving livestock-to-cereal terms of trade. This, in turn, is helping to improve household food access in most livelihood zones and will contribute to improving food security outcomes between September and December 2015 to either Minimal (IPC Phase 1) or Stressed (IPC Phase 2) levels, depending on the zone.

      For more detailed analysis, see the Food Security Outlook for July to December 2015.
